Dr. Michael Greger of NutritionFacts.org has released Volume 25 of his Latest in Clinical Nutrition DVD series. This one has a strong focus on digestive ailments. Dr. Greger scours the earth for important studies in peer-reviewed journals…so you don’t have to!
In the past year or so, two comprehensive books on plant-based eating have been published by colleagues of mine–Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive Edition by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina and The Vegiterranean Diet by Julieanna Hever. Both books deserved a more timely review, but I figure it’s better late than never.
As the title suggests, The Vegiterranean Diet examines the Mediterranean diet–for which there is much compelling evidence–and how it might apply to vegetarian eating. As it turns out, it applies quite well. This would be a great book to give to a family member who is suffering from type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity due to poor eating habits. In addition to the nutrition information, there are over 60 recipes and many tips on weight loss which I found sensible.
The video above is part of Latest in Clinical Nutrition: Volume 22 available for download or DVD (all proceeds go to charity). In Volume 22, Dr. G also takes on the idea that has been making the rounds for a while, that saturated fat does not contribute to heart disease.

I read a survey not long ago that found one of the main reasons people do not go vegan is from not having options in restaurants. So, my readers are apparently savvy about this importance of this issue.
By the way, that petition still needs 56,000 more people to sign, so please keep passing it on.
Wile my vitamin K2 series has some ardent followers, they are not many in number. Frankly, I’d much rather be beating up on the blood type diet, but K2 is a topic that anti-vegans bring up a lot and the research seems important, so I will plug on with it.
If you feel this work is worthy of support, please see how in the box below. Thank you!
I’m not getting behind this effort so that hardcore vegans have something to eat at McDonalds, but rather for the number of animals that could be spared a lifetime of suffering just from meat-eaters trying this burger and eating it occasionally. Why order two big macs, when you can lose weight and reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes by ordering just one Big Mac and a McVeggie?
